I needed some good nonfiction, I’m interested in the subject of the Weather Underground and other radical groups of the 1970s, and this is a brand new look back.
It’s certainly comprehensive although from what I read there are entirely too many sources which are labeled as “anonymous.” Also unfortunately, there’s virtually nothing about what was actually in the voluminous tracts the groups themselves wrote – what they said about the wrongs they were trying to correct, what they said about themselves at the time.
